    Pelangi Mall.: Shopping - 2

    by A2002 Updated Nov 13, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pelangi Mall is a pink colored building in Pelangi. It is quite near to the causeway, but not within walking distance though.

    This is the third oldest shopping mall after Holiday Plaza in JB. I like to do my shopping here for festive goodies too. On the ground floor, there will be many many make shifts stalls during the festive season selling many different types of goodies. Best of all, you can try them.. hehe.. I can have a free meal here trying all the festive goodies from the different stalls.

    City Square.: Shopping - 3

    by A2002 Updated Nov 13, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    City Square is the nearest shopping mall to the causeway. It is quite a new and modern shopping mall in JB.

    This is one of my favourite place to shop in, especially during the Mega sale. Clothes, shoes, bags, cosmetics, etc... I can spend a day here shopping and eating. :-)

    Sometimes I like to watch the world go by sitting in an air-conditioned cafe, sipping a cuppa coffee... Relax, eih?

    Holiday Plaza.: Shopping -1

    by A2002 Updated Nov 13, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Holiday Plaza is the second oldest shopping mall in JB, and it still remains as a very popular shopping mall.

    There are many small shops selling VCDs, DVDs, etc and other computer related products. You can shop around for mobile phones here, and even second hands too. There are also many fashion shops for clothes and shoes. I used to get my hair cut at the top most floor, however, it is getting too popular nowadays.

    You will not go hungry will shopping around Holiday Plaza. For quick bites, there are KFC and MacDonalds. There's also a hawker center for some hot food. There are many coffee shops and restaurants along the road opposite HOliday Plaza... So you will not go hungry...

    Joho Premium Outlet - JPO: Good Buy is Not All Around

    by Aidy_p Updated Jan 25, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Entrance to JPO

    As I step into the supposed shopping paradise, I was eager to see if I can really get a discount or two. With 80 stores in all, I was quite sure that I could pick up many good buys.

    From DKNY and Coach, to sportswear giants such as Adidas and Nike, I'm quite sure that there are a number of very savvy shoppers who will be able to pick out highly discounted items. Some stores such as Coach even had queues where people lined up just to purchase their items.

    What to buy: To be fair, I only had two hours there and even though I'd walked into a number of stores, I did not find many things that interest me. Adidas and Nike were so-so with the items not that discounted.

    In the end, I manage to buy three items at Esprit which was of quite good value. So yes, dig deep enough and you'd porbably get very good discounts.

    Plaza Angsana: Shopping for Malay Costumes

    by zuyao Updated Mar 23, 2007

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are looking for Malay costumes like batik, sarung, baju kurung and textiles, the best place to do this would be Plaza Angsana. Also good place to get your linen and bed sheets. The bigger shops like Kamdar have fixed price. For the smaller shops, you can do some bargaining. There is also a camera shop here - Mee Too which offers quite good prices for latest models of cameras.

    What to buy: Malay costumes, textiles & linen. Camera & photographic devices.

    Johor Premium Outlets: New Shopping Destination - Designer Brands!

    by ZENDER Written Dec 5, 2011
    Entering Johor Premium Outlets from Carpark

    This new branded outlet is known as the Johor Premium Outlets - a joint venture between the Simon Group of USA and Genting Group of Malaysia.
    It is located in a township known as Indahpura which is near Johor Bahru.
    Right now it is Open to public for shopping and more shopping - so it can be really crowded over the weekend - at least the first weekend of the soft opening when I was there on December 3....sheer madness....I cannot imagine the official opening on 11 December 2011.

    Have fun! The trip from Singapore after clearing immigration: about an hour depending on traffic going into Malaysia

    What to buy: Very easy floor plan to follow while shopping to your heart's content.
    tackle High Street on the Upper Floor first and then finish off the Low Street on the ground floor.

    Two floors of shopping divided into FIVE color-coded precincts for ease of remembering where you are.

    Yellow Precinct on Low Street and Pink Precinct on High Street have the most shops.

    Burberry, Coach, Zegna, Armani Exchange, Lacoste, Flow, Gap, DKNY, Calvin Klein, Adidas, Nike are already open for business.

    Polo Ralph Lauren, Versace, Tommy Hilfiger will be opening soon.

    Various: Jalan Wong Ah Fook: CDs, DVDs, Designer clothes etc

    by Hewer Updated May 26, 2006
    Jalan Wong Ah Fook

    The hot spot for brand products, DVDs, CDs and the like is the little stretch of shops on Jalan Wong Ah Fook between the Compact Hotel and City Square. Everything is at about the same price or slightly cheaper than in Bangkok or Phuket. I picked up some good designer baby clothes for my son.

    The shopfront spruikers are fairly pushy and if you visit as a single man (as I did), the first thing they'll ask you about is XXX DVDs. They backtracked a bit when I asked about toys and handbags. Anyway, good bargains to be had here.

    What to pay: For a pair of leather sandals (upper leather, leather in-sole, leather sole) about US$23. For a sequined blouse, about US$15.

    Kompleks Lien Hoe

    by Pomska Written Aug 8, 2005

    This shopping mall is approximately 5 kilometres from the centre. It's well-known budget shopping mall. The best place is the ground floor where you can find shoes, fake handbags, handicrafts etc. There are also good local food stalls.
